We're going to be skiing into the New Year in style! The snow's great for all kinds of skiing and riding. Plus, there are torchlight parades and/or fireworks at resorts such as Burke Mountain, Jay Peak, Bolton Valley, Sugarbush Resort, Stowe Mountain and Stratton Mountain this evening.
On the “bummer” side of things on this New Year's Eve, however, Magic Mountain in southern Vermont is closed today and tomorrow because of lift maintenance issues. Really bad timing. At Bolton Valley, they also have a lift down — the Timberline Lift — which is awfully fun to ski. Let's hope they are back in service very soon!
Here's wishing you all a wonderful, snowy 2013. We're certainly starting off on the right foot as far as snow in concerned!
